Over 40 people, of all ages, attended the Build Back Better event in Stokesley Town Hall, run by the Climate Action Stokesley and Villages group on Saturday 19th September. Lots of ideas of action that can be taken by individuals were shared around the themes of Energy, Environment, Food, Transport and Waste.
If you weren’t able to visit the event, due to the current Covid-19 restrictions, we will be adding ideas to the website over the next month.
There is still an opportunity to sign the group’s letter to the group’s local MP, Rishi Sunak, online. The letter along with the list of signatories will be sent during a national week of action for a green and fair recovery between the 5th and 11th October.
One of the attendees, Jack Turton, from the Stokesley School Green Group said,
“As young people, going through school, we are continually working to improve our future. However, I think it is also important for us, as well as older generations, to strive to improve the future of our planet and the environment we live in. I think now, as society is having to adapt and change anyway, is the ideal time to think about what we can to to improve the future and build back better.”
